Today I got back from France. I went to the final stage of the Tour de France, or better, Wendy took me there. She was one of the winners in a Rabobank contest and won an all expenses paid trip to Paris for two persons to witness the Tour de France up close.
We checked into the Concorde hotel on the Montpernasse around the corner of the Eiffel tower. No complaints there, 4 stars, good stuff.
Dear friends, brothers, fiends and haters! I'm very happy to announce my “soon to be released” signature frame with Felt Bikes. The “Dreamcatcher” is the first step in a small series of Felt signature parts and is all about giving (first of all myself and of course also you) a lot of space. The frame will be quite light but won´t be a weight freaks´ favourite since I wanted it to be strong and hold a lot of stress so I don´t break a frame every season.
The Subrosa brand has seen some quick developments in the short history of the company. After creating an image with T-shirts, a website, some creative marketing and a couple of short videos, the frames came out. Now the Subrosa crew take it one step further; complete bikes!
Name: James Willis Foster Age: 21 Hometown: Redlands, CA
Where did you grow up? James: I grew up in Redlands, CA. It's a little town about an hour east of L.A.
Who was there to ride with? James: I started off racing when I was about 10 years old, and as I got older I just started building dirt jumps with my friends around town. There were incredible jumps in Redlands, the local riders at the time were all really good dirt jumpers and they were all a lot older than me, and I just hung around them all the time and rode their amazing jumps.
Tuesday morning arrived and saw Stephen on the FES bikes. These are the bikes where electrodes are attached to the muscles on his legs which stimulate the muscles to power the legs to pedal the bike.His physio said that that in the 17 years she had been at Craig he was the first patient to use the FES bikes and be on a ventillator. Not only that he pedalled 5 miles in 30mins which was more than some patients could do after 2 weeks!This was certainly a confidence boost and cheered us all up. He was then booked in for more sessions on Wednesday and Friday.
Wednesday came but the effort of Tuesday had tired Stephen out
